In recent weeks, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has been called a lot of things. But perhaps no description is more apt than the one he acquired in high school: "The Desperado."
Bob Olsen, a retired Madison attorney, grew up in Walworth County and still subscribes to his hometown newspaper, the Sharon Reporter. Thus he saw an article the paper ran this January following Walker's inauguration. It included a yearbook photo of Walker from his senior year at Delavan-Darien High School, in 1986, with the caption: "Scott K. Walker - the Desperado."
